Local Law Enforcement in Arizona are Joining the Effort in Ousting Arpaio!
Now, these honest officials are JOINING the Fight to Recall Arpayaso! As I've been reporting, "Respect Arizona" is in the process of gathering signature petitions seeking to hold a recall election to RECALL Arpaio. Recall Arizona has a copy of a letter, signed by Arpaio and paid for by the "Elect Sheriff Arpaio" campaign, that was e-mailed to his supporters urging thenm to donate to help fight the recall.
In the letter, Arpaio did not tell the truth and said the Valley’s public safety was at stake in the recall.Without Arpaio, the letter said, those who would be in danger include single mothers whose children face “a rampant drug culture,” the hypothetical mother of a child killed by a drug dealer whom Arpaio is not able to keep in jail, and small-business owners whose livelihoods are threatened by illegal immigrants who have control over neighborhoods.
Respect Arizona released statements provided by retired Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris and retired Phoenix Assistant Police Chief Bill Louis, accusing Arpaio of misleading supporters by taking sole credit for community safety. Former U.S. Attorney for Arizona Paul Charlton and former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard were also quoted in the group’s statements.“Arizona law enforcement will continue to fight crime and ensure public safety long after Mr. Arpaio leaves office,” Harris said in his statement. Two other retired law-enforcement officials and former Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon echoed those sentiments in person. During a Wednesday news conference, they called Arpaio’s fundraising letter disingenuous.
“Elected officials come and go, and the state moves on,” Gordon said.
It is TIME for Arpayso to GO!!!
